Why Jigsaw? A Parent’s Tale

Why Jigsaw? A Parent’s Tale

JigsawThe competition for our children’s free time is ferocious. Tennis, ballet, French club – even Cordon Bleu cookery classes – they can do it all. And believe me, my kids did.

They tried everything, at least once.  As they discarded one activity after another, my bank balance shrank, the pile of unused trombones, football boots and hard hats grew, and I began to consider cartoons and computer games perfectly suitable (and cheap) entertainment.  So when my eldest daughter asked to join a Jigsaw
Performing Arts class held in a local school, I was reluctant to say the least. Three hours every Saturday seemed like a huge commitment for both of us, and Polly – a shy, timid 10 year old – had never shown any great desire to tread the boards.  What on earth could she possibly get out of it?

Well, I was wrong. Eight years on, those 3 hours every Saturday morning seem like the best investment I ever made in my daughter’s future. She was never the best actor, or singer, or dancer, but Jigsaw helped her achieve all that she could – and not just in the performing arts.

JigsawApart from having a huge amount of good, old-fashioned fun, Polly gained tremendous confidence, developed great social skills and learnt how to work in a team. Her teachers were always encouraging, sympathetic and completely professional and in their classes she flourished.

Jigsaw Arts has over 25 schools in London and the south-east, catering for students aged 3-18. If you would like your child to learn performance techniques while improving their confidence and social skills, then why not sign them up?

Jigsaw Performing Arts run in Wimbledon, Croydon, Surbiton, Mitcham, Battersea and Sutton, and other areas across the UK.
